Since the first case of COVID-19 was identified in December 2019, the illness has become a pandemic, touching every corner of the planet. The maps and charts below show the extent of the spread, and will be updated daily with data gathered from dozens of sources by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering.
Where COVID-19 is spreading in the U.S.
Since March, the U.S. has had more confirmed cases of COVID-19 than any other country, and the numbers continue to grow at a rapid rate. As of April 19, the U.S. has reported 31.7 million total cases and more than 567,500 deaths, having long since passed another grim milestone.
The states where deaths are highest
Though daily case numbers have been falling in most states as the holiday surge in infections has waned, deaths have been slower to drop. That is likely due to the fact these figures have typically lagged behind case rates by several weeks. While many states are beginning to see reductions in the number of lives lost to COVID-19, others are still battling near-record numbers of fatalities.
Where COVID-19 is currently spreading around the world
Some 190 countries and territories, representing every region on Earth, have now reported at least one case of the novel coronavirus. While many of the worst-hit regions have leveled off, parts of South America, North Africa, and Europe have recently seen growth in daily new cases.
How does the U.S. compare to other countries?
As of April 19, there have been a reported 142.1 million global cases and more than 3 million deaths.
The U.S. has by far surpassed every other country in the world in total confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, as well as in total confirmed related deaths.
